Any Tottenham Hotspur supporter will be glued to Sky Sports tonight as Arsenal visit Newcastle United.
It’s by far the biggest game of the season so far in terms of Champions League qualification.
Tottenham overtook fourth-placed Arsenal with a 1-0 win at Burnley on Sunday.
With the Gunners now fifth in the Premier League, two points behind their north London rivals and with a game to play tonight, victory is absolutely essential for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Speak with BBC Sport Following Sunday’s win over the Clarets, Kane joked that he would text former Spurs team-mate Kieran Trippier – who is now a Newcastle player – to ask him for a favour.
He said: “I’ll be texting Kieran Trippier. It’s going to be a tough game for Arsenal but we took care of what we had to do.”
Started on the bench
Unfortunately for Tottenham, Kane and Trippier, the Newcastle right-back has been injured most of the time at St James’s Park and is unlikely to start tonight.
He returned in the 5-0 win over Manchester City last week, playing 22 minutes.
But the Magpies have nothing left to play this season and so it would be questionable whether Eddie Howe would push him back just to beat Arsenal.
